The Pictures Generation

The Pictures Generation

In 1977, curator and critic Douglas Crimp organized a groundbreaking exhibition of rising American artists whose work in photography, film, video and performance cracked wise and appropriated from existing media imagery. The show, mounted at the influential downtown alternative gallery, Artist’s Space, featured Robert Longo, Jack Goldstein, Sherrie Levine, Troy Brauntuch and Philip Smith. It was called, simply, Pictures. Subsequently, many of the most important and challenging artists of the era—including John Baldessari, Dara Birnbaum, Barbara Kruger, Louise Lawler, Thomas Lawson, Matt Mullican, Richard Prince, David Salle, Laurie Simmons, Cindy Sherman, Michael Smith and James Welling—were added to the loose-knit group now known as the "Pictures Generation."

Dance Dance Film Essays

By Douglas Crimp. Edited by Karen Kelly, Barbara Schroeder. Introduction by Lynne Cooke.

Pioneering AIDS activist, art critic, educator and curator Douglas Crimp is known for the fluidity and acuity of his writing on an array of passions. His book AIDS: Cultural Analysis/Cultural Activism (1987) deconstructed the art world’s complicated and mostly disheartening responses to the AIDS crisis; On the Museum’s Ruins (1993) explored postmodernist art practices in relation to the politics of institutions; and Before Pictures (2016), a brilliant combination of memoir and criticism, chronicled Crimp’s first decade in 1970s New York.

This new book collects the critic’s incisive pieces on dance (a lifelong interest) and dance on film, which, according to Artforum, . . . .go to book page >>
